There’s a demo of that thing at the pro video shop in Minneapolis. It looks every bit as difficult to mount the camera to it as anything else out there.
Personally, I just use a good old fashioned monopod for this sort of stuff. My Manfrotto 558B weighs enough that it stabilizes shots quite a bit when I hold it off the ground, and it cost a fraction of the price of one of these stabilizers.
And if that’s not enough, it came with the same quick-release plate that was on my 503 heads, so I can swap cameras in a few seconds without swapping tripod mounting plates!
